June 8th, 2010

unexpected winter

it's summertime but
the air outside is freezing
and there's a frost due
any day

my veins have iced over
my heart beats are slow
but not steady
trying to pump hot blood through
but the snowdrifts are high
and the pathways have iced over

i can't seem to move
because my feet
have frozen in place
and i don't anticipate a thaw
(there are deadlines i will miss
because of this)
